The Collective is dedicated to advancing research on how power constellations, institutions, interests, and ideological positions affect health within different political systems and cultures, and at different levels of governance.
The Collective brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners interested in the political determinants of health. We provide a collaborative platform for our members, convene events and workshops, share information and enable joint publications and research projects.
The Collective grew out of the Independent Panel on Global Governance for Health, which between 2014 and 2020 followed up the recommendations of the Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health.
The Collective is funded by the Research Council of Norway through a SAMEVAL network grant awarded to the Global Health Politics research group (2020-2024) and by the University of Oslo.
